Hi I'm Justin Nelson

I grew up in Idaho, I don't eat bananas, I wish I had a mustache, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I'm currently serving in Phoenix Arizona. I grew up in Idaho Falls. I have a older brother and an older sister, a little brother and a little sister, and the greatest parents in the world. I grew up having way too much fun; as a family we would spend all of our time with eachother. We would spend our winters up in the mountains snowboarding and our summers were spent on the lake or river. I love fishing and wakeboarding, I am very passionate about both. I also enjoy rock climbing. I enjoyed my childhood so much because we played hard and then got to rest on the sabbath. My parents raised me to learn how to set apart at least one day a week to worship my God, I am forever grateful for them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know for myself that this church is true! I was raised in the "Mormon" church so I have always been exposed to it. When I learned how to think for myself I found out that what I had been raised up in was ACTUALLY true. I gained my testamony from much prayer and reading. It took a bit of effort but was the most worth while time of my life.The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me more happiness than anything else in life. I found that I only enjoyed things like fishing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, and rock climbing they brought no lasting joy or substance. I found true fufillment when I found out that Jesus Christ was my Savior, that Heavenly Father had a plan for me, and that I belonged to His church.The blessings of the gospel are endless, quite literally. It truely is the only way or place to find lasting happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing it with everybody I pass! I try to lift others up by sharing with them what I know to be true. I always try to give them a portion of what I have already recieved. The only way to let others know how to find what I've found is by opening my mouth! So I do. I invite others to take the challenge of asking God if what I teach is true so they can recieve an answer.
